A deal to repatriate some 3,000 Syrians – including Free Syrian Army-linked rebels – from Lebanon has been delayed due to the Syrian regime concerns about their final destination, a Syrian rebel source told The Daily Star Thursday.The repatriation deal, which comes as a result of the successful offensive by Hezbollah on the outskirts of Arsal, would see the Free Syrian Army-affiliated Saraya Ahl al-Sham rebels and civilian Syrian refugees transferred from Lebanon to the Syrian city of Al-Ruhaibeh in the eastern Qalamoun. The rebel source previously told The Daily Star that 400 rebels, along with 1,000 family members and 1,500 other Syrian civilians, had expressed willingness to go to Al-Ruhaibeh.Local media reported that buses to transfer the rebels had already reached Arsal's outskirts, although the Saraya Ahl al-Sham source denied any buses had arrived.
